Q & A

September 27, 2005

Questions that require answers for our own improvement:

Why you feel alone at times?
What you do when you feel loneliness?
How can come out with the stress?
Why you always feel pain when someone you love is in trouble?
Do you really sacrifice for others? If yes, why ?
Do you believe in love based on conditions?

What are your answers?



What type of Act is this?

September 25, 2005

A 38-year-old man killed his wife, four kids, and himself…..why? only GOD knows. This unfortunate event happened in Sharjah, as Gulf News reported.(
Whatever the reason may be, I can’t figure it out that why people do this and a million dollar question is how one can kill someone? Can we justify these kind of unfortunate events? I think No. Whatever the reason may be, how frustrated u r, what type of situation u r in these acts are nothing but brutal.



Whose loss is this anyways?

September 20, 2005

I always feel sorry to those who are outside Pakistan studying or working in general and without the family in particular. Ultimately they are the only ones who are in loss, loss of love, loss of affection, loss of friends, loss of touch, loss of feelings, loss of worries, loss of happiness, loss of go-gappas, loss of lassi, loss of nihari, and u just name. Once I said in my poem ‘Diyar-e-Gher’ i.e.:
Apnee saree yadon ko bas dil may qed kar rakha hay

Warna mera us ghar may ab – baqi kia rakha hay………..

Mera wajood ab us ghar may bas aik dibbay may rakha hay

Aur who dibba to baras hoain hain do-chattee may rahay hay

I think you all agree with the above …isn’t it? You feel disconnected even in this modern age …isn’t it strange?. Whenever u go on vacations spending quality time with your family, u treated like a guest….all ur relatives & friends come to c u and start talking in broken language considering like u forget ur own language, culture, customs, etc. Your friend requested u to do smthg for them so that they can also go out from Pakistan and if u start convincing them not to go outside until if it is really required than the common answer is “ yaar agar kuch nahee kar saktay ho to bahanay kiyon kar rahay ho”, and u have left with no answer.



Keep in touch with Friends

September 19, 2005

One of my friends sent me this and i m moved:

Around the corner I have a friend
In this great city that has no end
Yet the days go by, and the weeks rush on
And before I know it, a year has gone

And I never see my old friends face again
For life is a swift and terrible race
He knows I like him just as well
As in the days when I rang his bell
And he rang mine

We were younger then,
And now we are busy tired men
Tired of playing a foolish game
Tired of trying to make a name

Tomorrow I say I will call on Jim
Just to show that I am thinking of him
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes and
Distance between us grows and grows

Around a corner yet miles away
Here’s a telegram Sir, “Jim died today”
And that’s what we get and deserve in the end
Around the corner a vanished friend

Experiences at the Airports

September 14, 2005

I have been so lucky that I traveled few countries and got the chance to know the people of different cultures, languages, and customs. I have few experiences at different Airports which I will post in the following days.

Qist No. 1 – Negotiations Skills

Quid-e-Azam International Airport – Karachi:

I was at the custom counter where the officers negotiate with another passenger and u know what I mean right? The dialogues between them as follows:
Passenger: No, I cant pay Rs. 2000 as I don’t have it
Officer: I am sorry, I cant help u out as I promise myself that I will not accept anything below 2000.
Passenger: Sir, believe me, I really don’t have 2000 Rs. I have only 1500.
Officer: Aray Yaar, I said u its against my principal.
==== the negotiations continues, and at last there was another officer join the negotiation and his role was a mediator, now can u imagine how he mediated ======== U cant …right?
Mediator: Aray meray bhai, if he (officer) cant accept 1500 than pay 2000
Passenger: Repeats the same above said
Mediator: aik to yaar tum log tang bohat kartay ho and he takes the 500 Rs from his wallet and handed over to the customer and said include ur 1500 so that it will be 2000 and give it to the Officer…..
Passenger: (did wat he was asked to do)

And they all live happily ever after …… this is wat negotiation all about. Everything was so quick and easy that hardly takes 5 minutes and the customer was thru.

Qist No. 2 – Communication Skills

Dhaka International Airport – Dhaka

I went to Dhaka to set up the office of my employer. While coming back to Karachi, I was at the lounge of Dhaka Airport then a guy came to me and ask me ‘smthg’ in Bangla. I replied that I don’t know Bangla. He kept quite for a minute and turned to me and said “Yoooouuuu made in Pakistan” and I replied ‘Yes’. This is wat communication is all about. Just to pass the message thru verbal communication and if not than use non-verbal communication.

More Qists to follow ….



Lot kay bud-dho ghar ko aaya……

September 13, 2005

I spent 5 days in Karachi and it was too hectic. In five days I have seen almost all colors of Karachi i.e raining and its after effects, dust along with smoke from vehicles, traffic jams with horn all around you, behavior of the people – everyone was in a hurry and take his car or m/bike or any other vehicle first without considering the rights of others, Paan key peek from the passenger in the bus on to the roof of the car or on the Shalwar of the motorcyclist, breaking the red light signal and feeling proud like it was great and biggest achievement, Police in the dark —- verrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyy far from the light and traffic jams and waiting & looking for youngsters so that they can earn something from them for their young ones , proven capabilities of doing nothing at the time of crisis by KESC, thakay huay log, bujhay huay school k bachchay, traffic signals may professional bheek managay waloon ka hat dharmee, masoom bachchay jo under training hain and about to become the professional bagger, rangers k mushtanday, Eidhi k sard khany may rakhee hoee lasahin aur un ko lay janay woalon key qatarain, phulee sansain aur tutee umeedain aur tutee hoee sarkian, broken hearts and broken dreams, fear of everything and from everyone, lal qila may khanay walon ka long que spending tons of money inside the hotel but deny to give even a single penny to those who were standing outside and bagging for some food, showing that they are not deaf but ignoring them, stress, strain, etc, etc.

I feel pain when I c the hypocrisy in the behavior of our society but apart from all of the above I still luv Karachi.
